CALL FOR PAPERS: ROSA LUXEMBURG AND HER IDEAS
April 26-29, 2018 - Chicago

From April 26-29, 2018, the International Rosa Luxemburg Society and RLS—NYC are co-organizing an International Rosa Luxemburg Conference in Chicago.

Rosa Luxemburg dedicated her life to the fight against war, poverty, exploitation, and other forms of oppression. Living in the age of neoliberalism, many of us are facing the same or similar problems today as people did at the beginning of the 20th century. Luxemburg, who was a versatile Marxist theoretician as well as an excellent journalist and effective agitator, has left us a body of work that can still impact the political left in the present. We invite you to present relevant papers on the life and work of Rosa Luxemburg and her close comrades.

Chairs:
Prof. (pens.) Dr. Sobhanlal Datta Gupta, Kolkata, India
Prof. Dr. William A. Pelz, Chicago, Illinois, USA (dec.)
Prof. Dr. Pablo Slavin, Mar del Plata, Argentina

Co-Sponsor:
Dr. Albert Scharenberg, Co-Director, Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office

The conference language is English. Send paper proposals, including abstract (300-500 words), paper title, and short vita, to Ottokar Luban by December 31, 2017. A very limited number of travel grants will be available. Please indicate if you would like to apply for one.
